    There are definitely improvements planned for the internal search over time

    ? keyword lets you effectively search Alfred. However it does strict search so you are forced to start search query with how the actual workflow name starts. No fuzzy searching is supported. It would be awesome if ability to fuzzy search through results was added. Thank you.

    Awesome, that was it—thank you Vitor! In short to enable Spotlight index for a mounted volume: mdutil /Volumes/myvolume -i on See here for details: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20050430233117572

    Ability to Duplicate Web Searches

    I'm just giving this a bump since there has been no reaction. Is this you are considering?

    This is definitely an issue, imo. I've got a bunch of workflows called "XYZ Bookmarks" (Firefox Bookmarks, Pinboard Bookmarks etc.), and Alfred considers none of them to be matches for the query "bookmarks". The preferences search stands out in particular, but I think this is generally an issue with Alfred's filtering outside of its default results. There, it does a fantastic job of learning and adapting to my own usage patterns. In most other places, I have to adapt my usage to suit Alfred instead because its matching is so strict. You can't search both track and artist fields in the iTunes Mini Player, which is a very natural way to search for something like a song (the iTunes library is such a perfect fit for a SQLite database with FTS, too). I can't select my "Rename for Web" File Action with "rw" (or "rfw" or "renweb" or anything that isn't the start of "rename" or "for" or "web"). I can filter to "Application Support" with "as" when I navigate to ~/Library, but that also matches a bunch of other folders, and a more precise query like "appsup" (which is what I would naturally use) doesn't work. I don't expect (or want) full-on fuzzy search everywhere, but it's a perfect fit for File Filters, and Navigation Mode would benefit greatly from being more flexible, too, imo. I want Alfred to learn from and adapt to me, like it does with its default results. Currently, Alfred's strict filtering means it's the other way around.

    Alfred Filter: fuzzy matching

    I'd like to open up a feature request to have "Fuzzy" matching as one of result filtering options that Alfred handles. This would improve some of my workflows quite a bit. This can be achieved by running other script based tools or implementing the search within your own script, but it would make things easier, if it was already built into Alfred.

    This workflow sounds useful but the link is dead.

    Alfred Filter: fuzzy matching

    +1 from me (to nobody’s surprise). I would definitely love to see some more options for Alfred’s filtering. Fuzzy, OR, AND, and perhaps XOR (which is generally unintuitive, but sometimes useful). Fuzzy search, in particular, allows users to train Alfred to adapt to the way they think/work. The way filtering currently works, I rather have the feeling that I’m learning to adapt my queries to what suits Alfred.
